Membership in a Kiwanis club connects a person with the community and other individuals he or she wouldn’t otherwise know. Club members learn about developments and happenings in their community during their regular club gatherings. They also enjoy new social and business networking opportunities with the wide variety of members in their club. And, together, they combine their interests and skills to improve their community in ways that make a real impact in the lives of others, particularly children.
Each club selects its members from the surrounding community. Kiwanis clubs look for persons over 18 years old who are interested in their community and other people, and they seek members who can contribute four to six hours a month for club activities and projects. After paying an induction fee upon joining, each member pays annual dues, which are set by the club.
New members participate in an orientation program which helps them determine how to become involved in ways that best match their personal interests and skills. Members quickly learn that the benefits of membership increase with their level of participation in their club. They find the “Kiwanis Connection” to be an excellent fit in their personal and professional lives.
